Hello newfiebullet,

I have a 2011 Outdoorsman and purchased a Smittybilt Light Bar from Autoanything - was just under $130 USD. It mounts through the 2 holes that are used for your Licence Plate bracket so it should work fine on your truck. The only hard part I found is where to run the wiring from the lights you mount on the bar through to the truck as there are really no holes/openings you can use. I ended up running my wiring down through the openings where my tow hooks are located.

Mount them behind the grill and turn them into 8000K HIDs.
Sure being behind the grill affects the total light output, but from what I am getting. I have no complaints, 100% satisfied. This keeps the nice clean stock front end without adding a deer catcher on the front.

I understand. I would not want to drill holes in the bumper if they are not already drilled out. It looks nice and clean without them.

Heres mine with the bull bar and Hella 500s. The plastic under the bumper was trimmed to mount the bull bar. I may end up adding another set behind the grill but Im not sure.

I just put hella 500FFs behind the grill and needed to shave a little off the plastic to allow for adjustment. The 500s are a pretty tight fit, doubt the 700s would work anyway. Mine is a 4.7, hemi may be different.
